Furthermore, we inform you about your rights, as well technical and organizational protective measures taken by us with regard to the processing of your data.

2. Name and address of the data controller and service provider

The data controller within the meaning of the general data protection regulations (GDPR) and, at the same time, the service provider within the meaning of the Telemedia Act (TMG) is Stackable GmbH, Thomas-Mann-Straße 8, 22880 Wedel (henceforth termed “Stackable” or “we” in short).

Any questions or comments about this data privacy policy or generally regarding data protection should be submitted to the above-mentioned address or via e-mail to: info@stackable.tech

3. Collection and utilization of your data

Your data’s scope, type of collection and utilization vary according to whether you visit our website only to fetch information, or whether you make use of our website’s offers which require further data about you, e.g. when arranging an appointment:

3.1 Use for informative purposes

During use of our website purely for informative purposes, you never need to specify any personal data.

In this case, we just collect and utilize those data of yours which are sent automatically to us by your Internet browser, such as:

  • Date and time of invoking our web pages
  • Your browser type
  • Your browser settings
  • Your operating system
  • The page last visited by you
  • The transferred amount of data and access status (file transferred, file not found etc.)
  • Your IP address

During visits for informative purposes, these data are processed by us exclusively in a non-personal form. This is done to actually allow the use of web pages accessed by you, and to monitor whether our web pages are displayed to you optimally. Processing takes place on the legal basis of Article 6 Paragraph 1 f) GDPR and in our interest to display the website to you reliably and with as little disruption as possible.

We store the IP address as well as the remaining data accumulated during use for informative purposes for a period of 4 weeks; no personal evaluation is performed, only statistical analysis of website usage as described further below in this data privacy policy.

3.2 Arrangement of an appointment

If you would like to contact us via our appointment form or register for a b.telligent webinar, we will collect the following data from you:

  • Speech (Mr/Mrs)
  • First name and surname
  • First name and surname
  • E-mail address
  • Position (optional for appointments)
  • Phone (optional)
  • Preferred contact (e-mail/telephone) when making an appointment
  • Your message when making an appointment

We use this information to respond to your inquiry by e-mail, telephone or to register you for the webinar. We may also use your information to personalize our response to you and to provide you with information specific to your business and position.

If your inquiry relates to an existing contractual relationship between us or you are interested in concluding a contract, data processing is carried out on the legal basis of Article 6 Paragraph 1 b) GDPR (contract management).

Otherwise, data processing is performed on the legal basis of Article 6 Paragraph 1 f) GDPR (balancing of interests) and in our interest in being able to answer your request with the information relevant to you.

We store the data collected via the contact form and the communication to answer your enquiry for the duration of the communication and processing of your request. Your contact data will then be deleted unless storage is required for legal reasons (e.g. legal retention periods for business letters, currently 6-10 years) or permitted by your consent.

3.3 Newsletter

With your consent, you can subscribe to our newsletter, with which we inform you about our current offers. The advertised goods and services are named in the declaration of consent and generally include all content relating to Stackable’s portfolio of services and products.

We use the so-called double opt-in procedure to register for our newsletter. This means that after your registration, we will send you an email to the email address you provided in which we ask you to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter. If you do not confirm your registration within 7 days, your information will be automatically deleted. In addition, we store your IP addresses and the time of registration and confirmation. The purpose of this procedure is to verify your registration and, if necessary, to be able to clarify a possible misuse of your personal data.

Your e-mail address as well as your first name, surname, title and company are required for sending the newsletter. (This information is used to address you personally.) After your confirmation, we store your information for the purpose of sending you the newsletter. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO.

Consent to this processing can be revoked via e-mail or by sending a message to the contact details given in the imprint.

We would like to point out that we evaluate your user behaviour when sending the newsletter. For this evaluation, the emails sent contain so-called tracking pixels, which are single-pixel image files that are stored on our website. For the analyses, we link the data mentioned in paragraph 3 and the tracking pixels with your e-mail address and an individual ID. With the data obtained in this way, we create a user profile in order to tailor the newsletter to your individual interests. In doing so, we record when you read our newsletters, which links you click on in them, and infer your personal interests from this. We link this data to actions you have taken on our website.

You can prevent this tracking at any time by deactivating the display of images by default in your e-mail programme. In this case, the newsletter will not be displayed in full and you may not be able to use all the functions. If you display the images manually, the above-mentioned tracking will take place.

If you have any concerns about your personal data, please contact us using the details provided in the imprint.

3.4 Our career portal

On our website, you can apply for open positions at stackable in our career portal. For this purpose, we use a service of softgarden e-recruiting GmbH (Tauentzienstraße 14, 10789 Berlin; “softgarden”).

A so-called plug-in from softgarden is used on our career pages to make the application process easier for you. By integrating the plug-in, softgarden receives the information that you are viewing the corresponding website when you call up a page with a job posting, and also the data according to section 3 a of this declaration.

For more information on data processing in the context of the application process and the integration of softgarden, please refer to our separate privacy policy for the application process.

We use the data collected as part of the application process to carry out the application process and to analyze and evaluate our recruiting procedures. In case of employment, the applicant data will be stored in softgarden for the duration of the employment.

7. Integration of YouTube videos

Our website uses videos and plug-ins from YouTube. YouTube is a service provided by YouTube LLC (901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA; “YouTube”). YouTube LLC is a subsidiary of Google LLC (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”).

We use the so-called “extended data protection mode” of YouTube. This means that when our website is accessed, only an image (so-called “thumbnail”) of the embedded video is retrieved from YouTube or Google and only the data specified in section 3.1 of this declaration is transmitted to YouTube or Google.

Only when you click on the video will further data be transmitted to YouTube or Google and cookies set by these third-party providers. If you are logged into a YouTube or Google account, depending on your account settings, additional data about the video view can be assigned directly to your account. If you do not want this allocation to your profile, you must first log out of your YouTube or Google account.

Google possesses EU-U.S. privacy shield certification which also applies to wholly-owned subsidiaries of Google LLC in the United States and thus also includes YouTube. The EU-US privacy shield agreement is intended to ensure an adequate level of data protection for data transfers to certified U.S. companies. In a resolution dated 12.07.2016 (file reference C(2016) 4176), the EU commission has established the adequacy of the data protection level guaranteed according to the EU-U.S. privacy shield agreement.

For the purpose of making this website available and for the purposes mentioned previously, your data are relayed under certain circumstances to technical services providers who support us (e.g. website hosting and support, content delivery networks), and who, needless to say, we have carefully selected and appointed in writing.

These service providers are bound by our instructions and regularly monitored by us.

Relay of your data to other third parties otherwise takes place only insofar as expressly noted in this data protection statement, or insofar as we are required to do so by law.

  • Company
  • Department

We also use the data to track the popularity of the whitepapers and to contact you regarding the content of the whitepapers, their technical functionality and for updates.

Admissibility of processing is governed by Article 6 Paragraph 1 b) GDPR, which states that processing is lawful if necessary to fulfil a contract whose parties include the data subject, or to implement pre-contractual measures requested by the data subject.

White papers/checklists are provided to you on request in the context of a contractual relationship. Data collected by b.telligent are also required for implementing these contractual measures because it would not be possible to respond to such requests without them.

Stackable also uses the data for advertising purposes. Admissibility of processing here is governed by Article 6 Paragraph 1 a) GDPR, which states that processing is lawful if the data subject has provided their consent to processing of their personal data for one or more specified purposes.

Your data are deleted after your consent has been revoked, provided that b.telligent has no legitimate interest in further retention. This can be the case if b.telligent needs to continue storing your data because of a contract with you. Stored in any case are only those data actually and absolutely necessary for achieving the related purpose. Provision of these data is neither legally nor contractually stipulated. If the data are not provided, you will not receive access to white papers.

You can revoke your consent to this processing by e-mail: info@stackable.tech
